First US short line railroad to join BiTA
US-based Omni Trax is the first short line railroad to join the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA). The organisation was founded to engage thought leaders in the transportation and technology industries who share a vision of leveraging blockchain technology within the supply chain to develop a standards framework, educate the market and encourage widespread adoption.
“As a transport service provider, we want to have a positive impact on efficiency, security and transparency, and that’s what blockchain offers,” said Hubert Gassner, Omni Trax's chief financial officer. (ben)
